    There are many people who ask themselves “What would Jesus do?” but in the case of Meshel Laurie it was “What would Buddha do?” The Australian writer comedian and radio personality was looking towards her Buddhist faith as a way of making sense of the end of her 19 year marriage Except that there were no self help manuals on successfully separating not from a Buddhist standpoint so she wrote her own and it’s a thought provoking relatable and compassionate readLaurie’s book finds the right balance between offering her own personal tale as well as the fundamental principles that Buddhists believe She describes her separation from her ex husband Adrian Lewinski in some detail whilst also offering a template for navigating through the negative emotions of fear grief and loneliness that are synonymous with heartbreakIf you’re sitting there dismissing this book as a bunch of hippie nonsense then think again This book is instead a rather practical and logical collection of different chapters Early on Laurie has us considering the fact that we will all lose somebody close to us someday “No relationship – romantic familial or platonic – is absolute and forever We will all lose someone we rely on at some point in our lives Sometimes the other person chooses to leave us sometimes they’re taken from us tragically and sometimes we discover that they were never ours to begin with But one way or another the relationship will end”This means that the ability to deal with the loss of a relationship is a useful skill Another handy lesson that Laurie offers is to learn about the Buddhist principles of “impermanence” ie understanding that everyone and everything is constantly changing and “dependent arising” or understanding that we never actually stop evolving or changing and that this process is shaped by the conditions around us For Meshel she simply wants us to consider and focus on the positive aspects of a break up – even if it’s just being able to lie in a large bed and watch your favourite shows on Netflix – you should seize this opportunity for happiness and growthMeshel Laurie offers us some very practical pieces of advice in her second book Buddhism for Break ups This combination of well written well explained and considered Buddhist teachings as well as her own real life experiences can offer some real comfort to readers in much the same was as Chicken Soup For The Soul has done You can really get a sense that “If Meshel can do it then perhaps I can too”Buddhism for Break ups should be essential reading for anyone that finds themselves broken hearted and open to the prospect of learning new things and becoming a better individual Buddhism for Break ups may not answer all of your uestions but it is certainly clever and therapeutic enough to steer you in the right direction NamasteThis review originally appeared t the following website

    Being a book written by Meshel Laurie there was humour here in parts in spite the seriousness of the topic and devastation the ending of a marriagerelationship can bring I probably read it a little too late as I'd already been through most of what she talks about in here Still a good read for anyone wanting a bit of support and an alternative take on things No uick fixes but a sense of not being alone

  3. Arwa Arwa says:

    I liked this book It does apply Buddhism to breakups But it’s also like talking to a friend who is VERY opinionated; and one who gives you an example from her life for everything you are thinking and not thinking about Best things in this book revolve around finding empathy for those who hurt us because they fighting their own battles or in some cases they are insecure narcissists with dismissive attachment styles and shame issues lol It highlights that attachment is the root of all suffering and that we are all connected so why get all “graspy”? It emphasizes impermanence of good AND BAD states feelings and relations Finally it provides specific coaching on avoiding unhelpful curiosity about an ex and the temptation to process bizarre claimstheories about your completed relationships

    Buddhism for Breakups came at the right time for me I've recently begun to emerge from my own marriage breakdown and am reconsidering my life I really enjoyed this book it's hard to get humour into a book about divorce or Buddhism I suspect but Meshel does that She is unflinchingly honest about her despair at her marriage breakdown I do plan to reread ithttpastrongbeliefinwickerblogspot

    I couldn’t put this book down because I kept searching for the magical cure to heal my broken heart Unfortunately it’s not going to happen and I hope you don’t experience what I did the longiness to make it right with your ex based on the insights you got from this book It you have that opportunity I am genuinely happy as there will be people like me who won’t and will have to just accept that we entered into a relationship with good faith and learnt a stack on the way out Good luck to anyone suffering a broken heart I only wish for you that the pain is uick and you grow from it X

  6. Jordyn H Jordyn H says:

    I read this as someone who is not going through a break up but who had dabbled in Buddhism for around 5 years I thought Meshel did a good job of making Buddhist principles understandable accessible to non Buddhists I would have liked closure in the end of the book as it seemed to taper off with no indication of Meshel's thoughts going forward There were also a number of grammatical errors throughout ie words missing where they obviously should have been ambiguous sentence structure making some sentences confusing which made the read a little jarring Overall good ready though with any luck it will show people the beauty and simplicity of the Buddhist faith

  7. Amanda Lenon Amanda Lenon says:

    Sensible down to earth advice and philosophy told alongside the story of Meshel's marriage falling apart An interesting and easy read that is calming and thought provoking I'm not going through a break up but if I was I'd read it again

  8. Samantha Pryse Samantha Pryse says:

    Great read Reminded me about attachment and being unattached for love It has really began to help me sort out what I want Recommended if you are caught up on not knowing

  9. Karina Karina says:

    My first introduction to Buddhist principles and ideas and was totally blown away by Meshels frankness knowledge and laid back approach Certainly has opened me to seeking further enlightenment

  10. Alisha Henderson Alisha Henderson says:

    Makes Buddhist principles easy to understand in the context of a break up and just general life
